Driving or flying, the Emerald Coast is easily accessible. Interstate 10 to the north and U.S. Highway 98 along the beach make for a picturesque drive. Destin - Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) is a short drive from the Emerald Coast Convention Center, and the Pensacola International Airport (PNS) is just an hour to the west. To the east, near Panama City, is Northwest Florida International Airport (ECP). Destin Airport (DTS) serves private and small charter aircraft and is only moments away.
